What are the best heavy oil balls around?

Doesn't necessarily have to be the latest release - but, in general, new and old name the best heavy oil pieces you know of?

Thanks!

Re: What are the best heavy oil balls around?

I agree with the TR2, takes an almost 90 degree turn left even with my low rev rate.

upkeep on the cover is a BIATCH tho. But yes if you're willing to mess w/the cover alot, its good.

Nano or OG VG
Alpha Max
Possibly the Black Panther, dunno yet.
Solid Hot Sauce IF you can find one.
Big Curve

just to name a few i've had the pleasure of that works well.

Re: What are the best heavy oil balls around?

For me, it has to be the Nano. I've never seen a ball make such a recovery on heavy oil. Prior to that, I'd have to say the Black Cherry Bomb. That ball makes anyone a better bowler.

I really want to try a Nano but got a Theory for $100 drilled so another $250 for another new ball just isnt in the budget right now. The theory is a nice ball but watching others with the Nano id say thats your ball if your gonna spend the money.

Re: What are the best heavy oil balls around?

Virtual Gravity Nano
Morich Destroy/R
Roto Grip Theory
Roto Grip Mutant Cell
Brunswick Alfa Max


The Nano and Destroy/R are the hookingest ball on the planet right nowwith the Destroyer being about 1 board less than the Destroy/R OOB
the Destroy/R takes to surface better and out hooks everything at 1000

the Theory, Mutant Cell and Alfa Max are a good notch below the Nano and Destroy/R but all are hook monsters

Re: What are the best heavy oil balls around?

I would say the Nano. Theory from Roto Grip also moves quite a lot in the smuge.

Re: What are the best heavy oil balls around?

Someone please correct me if im wrong....Usbc put some limitations on ball manufactures. Balls now cant have a differential higher than 60 and a flare of more than 6.
